The Sino-India boundary query is a really “sophisticated” and tough challenge, he stated at a webinar on his e-book “The India Approach”, giving a historic perspective to growth of the connection between the 2 neighbouring international locations within the final three many years.
The Exterior Affairs minister stated the connection between India and China, which was “very tough”, was normalised since late 1980s by means of a plethora of initiatives like commerce, journey, tourism, and societal actions on the premise of peace and tranquillity alongside the border.
“It’s not our place that we must always remedy the boundary query. We perceive that it’s a very sophisticated and tough challenge. There have been many negotiations at completely different ranges… That may be a very excessive bar for a relationship,” S Jaishankar stated.
